Nov. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Janney Montgomery Scott Chief Investment Officer Mark Luschini discusses the markets on Bloomberg Television's "Street Smart." (Source: Bloomberg)

You say stocks are trading above their averages.

It looks like we have a healthy market.

Are we in for a reality check?

I think we do have a healthy market.

I think it did get a little overbought.

I think we have seen a move that is a little bit too far, too fast.

We need some validation which does not help earnings growth, which has driven about 65% of the game.

I am encouraged longer-term, once we get past this short-term phenomenon.

A reverse of what we had over the better part of the summer.

We think that is like an internal correction taking place that once again has investors growing increasingly confident that economic conditions are showing signs of life here in the u.s. that will once again be a more rewarding experience.

You just gave me an idea for a little insight and action tomorrow.

I will have to look at the leading economic indicators and see with that tells us about industrials.

Tune in.
